"An absorbing read, for anyone who enjoys sci fi, fantasy, blending of the two, excellent characters, Elliot's previous work, or dang good storytelling. Or all of the above."

"This is a great collection, a fun collection, an important collection, a highly recommended collection. The Very Best of Kate Elliott
is the very best that genre fiction can offer."
Kickass heroines and riveting storytelling are the calling cards of groundbreaking fantasy author Kate Elliott (Crown of Stars
, Court of Fives
). Here her bold adventuresses, complex quests, noble sacrifices, and hard-won victories shine in classic, compact legends. In "The Memory of Peace," a girl's powerful emotions rouse the magic of a city devastated by war. Meeting in "The Queen's Garden," two princesses unite to protect their kingdom from the blind ambition of their corrupted father. While "Riding the Shore of the River of Death" a chieftain's daughter finds an unlikely ally on her path to self-determination.
